Few months ago I broke the screen on my Nexus One and was forced to buy a new phone. Froyo or Android 2.2 came just before I bought my Vibrant.
I used to a have a Blackjack back in the day, and was happy with Samsung, battety life was good, reception was never a problem, so I figured, nothing could go wrong.
Well, I found out Samsung sucks at updating android devices. You may say why does it matter, very few folks care what froyo brings? True, but very influential people! Chances are that if you know what froyo offers, you are a go to guy for technical questions at work, home or wherever. In other words, you are free salesman for Samsung. And now you’re pissed off and will never recommend another Samsung phone in your life.
How many people people believe AOL was killed this way, by ignoring the needs of techie folks?

I never liked the original Kindle or the second generation. Kindle DX caught my attention with the native PDF support and 9.7″ screen. Now, the device that I think can compete and maybe even kill Kindle, if they market it right, is Touch Book made by a startup Always Innovating.

I jut saw this app on android market place and I am surprised its a free application. Reason why I say that is because this allows android users blog from anywhere, like what I’m doing right now. Fortunately the browser on the G1 is pretty good and it can handle almost all ajax calls that wordpress requires but this tool makes it so much easier to work with.
I setup the blog a day earlier and this is my first post. I was tired to actualy write anything after the long setup I went through. Mainly waiting for domain name to be available. I thought why not write about the app that I’m using to post with.
